This is the next to last chapter in the Honoring of Cpl. Ben F. McEvoy. The dedication ceremony honoring him will be held on Monday, at his supposed gravesite . . . and Marianne, Jim and I have been invited along with his family and members of his Pennsylvania State Trooper family.
A week ago, Jim and I went to the cemetery to verify some information on another project I am working on, and I spotted this! The cement slab was in place for the grave marker for Cpl. McEvoy! I cannot believe I did not have my camera with me, but thank goodness, I had my cell phone!
I went back today with my camera, and it was a good thing I took the picture last week, because the scene had changed. Everything is in place for the unveiling ceremony next week. Well, almost everything. Jim will clean off Cpl. McEvoy’s uncle’s headstone directly behind the “Kiehl” Monument. See it? It is covered with grass clippings from many mowings in the past.
We’ll be there Sunday to clean off that headstone and we’ll be there Monday!
. . . there is no way we’d miss that!
